Inter.link Collaborates with Telehouse and LINX (London Internet Exchange)
Following the introduction of its first UK point of presence and ongoing mission to provide sustainable, automated connectivity to the internet, Inter.link has strategically chosen to collaborate with two network powerhouses with strong presences in the UK: Telehouse, a provider of industry-leading data centre colocation services, and LINX, one of the largest internet exchanges. Together, they create one of the most important interconnection locations in the world.
Expansion and sustainability
Telehouse’s London Docklands site is the primary home of LINX and Europe’s most connected data centre campus. Along with growing its UK presence, Inter.link and Telehouse share mutual commitments towards sustainability, with the London Docklands site also powered by 100% renewable energy. As part of its continued expansion, Inter.link has also connected with Telehouse in Paris.
"As we've expanded into the UK it only makes sense for us to partner with Telehouse and LINX given their strong presence in the region," said Interlink co-founder and CEO Theo Voss. "Working with them will help us to provide sustainable connections to our customers in the UK and beyond."
Telehouse is a leading global data centre service provider, bringing together more than 3,000 business partners including carriers, mobile and content providers, enterprises and financial services companies.
Established in 1989, Telehouse provides reliable, secure and flexible colocation, enabling organisations to accelerate speed to market and create business opportunities through fast, efficient and secure interconnections. The organisation is a driving force for sustainability in the data centre industry and powers its data centres with electricity from 100% renewable sources.
“We’re delighted to welcome Inter.link as our valued customer at Telehouse London Docklands. It’s exciting to play pivotal role in their expansion into the UK. Together, we look forward to fostering innovation, facilitating seamless connectivity, and driving the future of digital transformation worldwide. We look forward to developing this partnership to further support Inter.link’s plans for global network expansion.”

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) is one of the largest Internet exchanges in the world, connecting over 900 member ASNs from 80 countries around the globe. Their primary service is peering, the exchange of data between networks, working for the good of the Internet since 1994. LINX continues to expand their London presence with 16 PoPs across the capital along with regional exchanges in Wales, Manchester, and Scotland.
LINX also operates an Internet exchange in the Ashburn metro area in the US just outside Washington DC. Our regional Internet exchanges help to keep the exchange of traffic local, reducing latency and providing an overall improved service for the end user.
"We are pleased to welcome Inter.link to the LINX member network in the UK. The organisation is a new and fast-growing Network-as-a Service provider and it's great to hear that peering at LINX in London was top of the agenda when building a new point of presence in the UK."
